Comments

    "Gillian Pederson-Krag is considered 'a painter's painter' because of her lush sense of color, her deft touch of the brush and the quiet sense of brooding that permeates her imagery. Her paintings and prints reveal a sense of poetic quality that requires the viewer to slow down and muse on the connections among the forms and meanings they suggest. Her works show us views of solitary people engaged in familiar undertakings, a child at play on the floor or a woman looking toward the window. Her landscapes are 'moments' that express a feeling of grandeur in nature, often with a depicted view that seem much like ones we have seen often in our daily lives. The image evokes feelings within us that transcend explanation and provide a sense of human connection to her resonant works.” —From Gillian's bio at Hollins Academids
